Friday Felines ...
Happy Epiphany!

Saturday Evening Post

Good evening, my friends! I hope you're all doing well. :)

I've been busy this afternoon, printing out and assembling my daybook ...


And it was going pretty smoothly - I was clipping right along, using my rather low-tech "spreadsheet" to keep all the pages in order - when one of the printer cartridges ran out (specifically, "magenta"). So I guess I'll have to run to Staples tomorrow ... where *sigh* I just happened to be this morning ... though regrettably I did not have "printer ink" on my list.

I did, however, pick up a few more MSHO supplies ... 


I just love all that orange!

And speaking of orange, Kim asked me to share the Orange-Spice Cocoa recipe I had taped into my journal and here it is, as found at The Food Network. Doesn't it sound delicous? I just may have that for my "Tuesday Tea" this week ...

Also, Daniele asked me to share the "Winter Car Checklist" also taped in my clippings diary. I found that list in Mary Jane's Farm magazine, but since I can't find it online, I will share it here with you all:

Winter Car Checklist

  • cell phone with portable charger and extra batteries
  • emergency phone numbers
  • full change of clothes
  • extra outerwear
  • sleeping bag
  • space blanket
  • pocket knife
  • whistle
  • small shovel
  • windshield scraper
  • radio
  • flashlight (and extra batteries)
  • beeswax candle
  • matches (in waterproof container)
  • small pot or mug
  • 2 gallons of water
  • non-perishable snacks
  • tow rope
  • bungee cord
  • tire chains
  • flares
  • jumper cables
  • brightly colored flag or help sign
  • first aid kit
  • basic tool kit (including duct tape)
  • paper towels
  • poncho or large trash bag
  • busy work

(Goodness! I'm sorry to say I have very few of these things in my van. Actually, I just checked this list with Bill and he tells me I have the windshield scraper and maybe some bandaids in the glove compartment. Clearly, I like living on the edge, lol.)


So that's all for now - just a quick little post to say "hi" and catch up. We're about to start supper (panini on the griddler) so I'll be off now ... but sweet dreams, my friends! And just think ... only one more sleep till Downton Abbey returns!
